LOST Theories So you think you know some secrets of the island? Maybe you can explain everything. If it's original and you can back it up, we'd love to hear it.

Alright, at first I thought this didn't have to do with any thing. But if you analyze the numbers purely by the way they sound, instead of what the numbers represents, it makes some sense.

They say numbers are the universal language, because we understand the concept the numbers represent. What if someone used the numbers because when sounded out they, were phonetically similar to a spell or something. Maybe you have to have the numbers written and the spoken at the same time in order to be cursed.

It was a novel idea, but my theory at least is limited to the numbers being spoken strictly in English. We haven't heard them spoken in another language yet. I wonder though weather the numbers do sound like words form another language. If they did that would be interesting.

Gambit,

If you're looking to have a bit of fun with the numbers, what they mean, what they represent, where they show up, blah, blah, blah, take a look at this site.

Perhaps it will help you in your theory(s).

I still haven't gotten through all of it!

4!! The number of fingers on one hand! (The thumb doesn't count)

8!! The number of fingers on two hands!

15+8 = 23!!!!!! OMG!!

Ok.. sorry about that. I got a bit carried away.

Yup.

Mindyou digits on the hand. Hands are important. We see hands everywhere in LOST. We use hands to count and to communicate. Some people say they saw this in the finale - a huge hand pointing upwards. Which finger (or thumb) it is depends on your point of view.

Inclined to agree. Don't know what it is but it seems like one of the most honest things I've ever read. If it were a cereal I would buy it.

Its really great posts.
